SBS Best New Sound Nominations
Day Six: J Speed
This year when it came to putting the rhythm & style into the rhymes in Hip-Hop, rapper J Speed helped raise the standards significantly by putting art back into the rap-game. With his signature sound, unique tone in his voice and ambitious approach, he put out a wild & seriously entertaining record called Sehm2yce at the middle of this year before going on to make even more of a statement in 2017 with the release of the This Side Of Green EP. No doubt about it, this was a huge year for J Speed’s music and you could tell from the amount of pure enthusiasm, skill and passion being combined on the mic that he was certainly feeling the vibe. Feeding on that creative inspiration, he knocked track after track and bar after bar out of the park, highlighting his talent as a genuine wordsmith and establishing himself fully in the Hip-Hop scene through material that has lasting, memorable hooks and swag oozing from every corner of the records he made. Definitely a highlight of 2017 and a worthy contender in this year’s up & coming reader-vote beginning Dec. 15th – make sure to come out and support J Speed! The man is seriously dedicated to his art and you could feel that in every moment of the music he made this year – don’t get caught sleepin’ on J Speed.
Mad respect and massive congratulations to J Speed for making the official top-10 this year for his innovative rhymes and outstanding effort on Sehm2yce – this emcee was one of the boldest voices on the mic this year and made a record so strong that it stood out from the rest in 2017 for all the right reasons.
